Monitor with integrated brightness adjustment
What various newer monitors are already able to do, namely to offer different brightness levels for different areas of application, Samsung wants to take one step further with its latest 17 'monitor.
This should automatically switch to the correct mode depending on the currently running application and replace navigation in the OSD (On Screen Display) in this case. Like Iiyama, Samsung offers 3 brightness levels . 'Text' corresponds to the display familiar from other monitors, the brightness is already increased considerably with 'Image' before the maximum brightness is reached in the 'Video' or 'Entertainment' stage, because often from increased brightness If the result is a more or less clearly visible reduction in sharpness, Samsung wants to make it possible to brighten only a certain area of the monitor image with a feature called “HightlightZone II” If you believe in the promise, you don't have to worry about the text in the background becoming illegible while watching a video in window mode. With HightlightZone II, too, the monitor should be able to find the relevant screen areas by itself. Tests will have to show whether this technology really does its job without any problems or whether switching flash animations that may occur too often while surfing does not have a negative impact. A 19 'model with this technology will also come onto the market this autumn.
